Dear sir:

It may sound hard to believe, but short haul jets are delivered the same 
way single engine cessnas are; flown from factory to buyer.  Great circle 
routes are used instead of flying directly over the Atlantic or Pacific.  
There are plenty of fuel stops, and the jets may get there in a week or 
two but in one piece.
